Game of Thrones

The internet is rife with speculation on the casting which is currently taking place for HBO's Game of Thrones, a new TV series based on George R. R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire books.

So Screenterrier thought it would join in the fun with suggestions for the younger cast members:

DAENERYS (age 18) - Rachel Hurd-Wood or Kaya Scodelario

JON SNOW (age 17) - Aaron Johnson or Augustus Prew

SANSA STARK (age 13) - Holly Bodimeade or Skye Bennett

ARYA STARK (age 11) - Lina Leandersson

JOFFREY (age 13) - Bill Milner or Charlie Rowe

ROBB STARK (age 17) - Olly Alexander

THEON GREYJOY (age 19) - Jack O'Connell

BRAN STARK (age 9) - Asa Butterfield

EDIT: Pick for Jon Snow updated.


  1. Nice list! Yours probably contains the most plausible possibilities since they are all UK-based and (I would assume) British Equity members.

  2. does lina leandersson speak english? she was fantastic in "Let the Right One In", but i don't want an arya with a different accent than her siblings.

  3. I recently had a casting for Robb... didn't hear anything back though *sadface*

  4. izakmo: since she is grown up (or growing up) in sweden, she most likely speaks at least decent english. about accent I dont know

  5. Captain Ad Lib: If you don't me asking, how old are you? There's been a lot of speculation about how far HBO plans to "age up" the actors playing the younger characters. Thanks!

  6. my son has had a casting and a recall for Bran, he is 9
